What can I use to raise my ph? Without grow shop prices..
Not many options imo. For soil, lime is the best thing. For hydro, you truly do not want sodium ion. The typical bases however are baking soda and sodium carbonate (pool pH-up or painter's TSP "substitute"). If you have access to slaked lime (calcium hydroxide) you can make a solution (aquarists call it Kalkwasser, German for "lime water") and use that. But a hydroponic pH-down is typically potassium bicarbonate (if solid) or potassium hydroxide solution. The good news is, a little goes a rather long way. cn
